The rise of John Dillinger from petty criminal (including, unforgiveably, holding up a cinema) via prison and bank robbery with his new convict associates to the accolade of Public Enemy Number One. Written by

Low budget, high quality B-film depicting the life of gangster John Dillinger. Seventy minutes of beautiful black & white action. For entertainment's sake I'm certain there is latitude given in the telling. Lawrence Tierney early in his career gives the performance for which he is most remembered...Public Enemy Number One. Rounding out the cast of this little gem are:Anne Jeffreys, Edmund Lowe and Elisha Cook Jr. Kudos to Dimitri Tiomkin for original music.
Note:In real life Tierney would be arrested more times than Dillinger.
